Persona 5 is on the horizon, everybody, and Atlus' recent "Take Tokyo Tower" livestream revealed that the game will launch on September 15th for PS4 and PS3 in Japan, with pre-orders being available beginning on May 6th. In addition, Atlus showed off a brand-new trailer and unveiled a snazzy collector's edition, which you can check out below.
This special edition will cost 13,800 Yen and includes:

A few other announcements from the stream included information on the Persona 5 anime, which is now titled Persona 5 the Animation: The Day Breakers (not to be confused with that one vampire movie). This 30-minute special will air in September and is produced by A-1 Pictures. In addition, August 13th will feature the Persona series' first orchestral concert, and there will be a 20th Anniversary Festival at Arts Chiyoda in December. Below, you can see an interview with the developers alongside some additional footage for the game.
Last, but not least, we have the game's Japanese box art, which looks amazing.
Atlus also confirmed that we will see more Persona 5 at E3 this year, so stay tuned for that.
